Seize the Birthday 12

I'm loving the Seize the Birthday sketch challenges.  Who doesn't need more birthday cards?

The paper is from a new 6 x 6 pack I got last week called Paper Cottage from Basic Grey.  It looked like a good choice for a feminine birthday card to me.  The sentiment was printed on the computer and then cut from Elegant Edges along with the shadow.  From the same page, I welded two border pieces to a rectangle to make the red strip and cut the end of the banner shape by hand after tracing the edge of the topnote shape.  I think I'll use this sketch again to make more cards.  Wait!  I'll have to use it to make a masculine card for next week's challenge.  It's great that you get to use the sketch twice like that.  I'd better start looking over my paper.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.


  1. Great card - and good for you lining up the sentiment so perfectly! I have a hard enough time with stamps... Gorgeous papers too!

    1. I cheated, Kate. I made the cut out of scrap paper first. Then I lined up the printed sentiment under it in the correct spot, using painter's tape to keep the first cut in place. I find this easier than using center point on the Cricut.

  2. what a happy card :) So glad you joined us on Seize the Birthday.
